As a writer, that moment every few years when I buy a new laptop and find out that all the word processing stuff has slightly changed again (stuff I spend every working day using) is like getting into bed at night and finding some mad robot where you expected your wife to be.
It is really rare to find someone you really, really love and that you want to spend your life with and all that stuff that goes along with being married. I am one of those lucky people. And I think she feels that way too. So the romantic stuff is easy because you want them to be happy.

Your problem is how you are going to spend this one odd and precious life you have been issued.

You need to eat normally and healthfully, and you need to exercise. I’m so passionate about this because I think people spend their lives not happy in their bodies.

If you live in London, where politicians and media commentators spend most of their time, you are spoilt for transport choices – trains, an extensive underground network and a regular bus service.

I don’t go out at all. I have my three restaurants that I go to, and that’s it. I spend the least possibly time here on-site because that takes energy away as well. There is a lot of people, you know. It’s massive kind of stadium, a lot of players.
We’re all products of what we want to project to the world. Even people who don’t spend any time, or think they don’t, on preparing themselves for the world out there – I think that ultimately they have for their whole lives groomed themselves to be a certain way, to present a face to the world.
We’re obviously going to spend a lot in marketing because we think the product sells itself.
If you have children and you hear about a child being kidnapped, it makes you really appreciate your own children. It makes you want to spend time with them. But I think anything that shakes you out of your daily patterns in a good thing.

One thing I’m not going to do is chase staying alive. You spend so much time chasing staying alive, you won’t live.
I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and none of the other Backstreet Boys live in Georgia. So a lot of times, when people come to my house they’re like, ‘Hey, is A.J. here?’ Or, ‘Is Kevin here?’ Or, ‘Is Nick in the bathroom?’ People think we live together and we spend all the time in the world together, but we really don’t.
Sometimes I had to spend a whole day mixing a boiling mass with a heavy iron rod nearly as large as myself. I would be broken with fatigue at the day’s end. Other days, on the contrary, the work would be a most minute and delicate fractional crystallization, in the effort to concentrate the radium.
I feel like if I can help somebody look at money differently or manage their finances differently or spend a little differently, then I feel like I’m doing my job. So I’ll try to help them see the bigger picture and think longevity versus the temporary spending that we’re kind of accustomed to.
Work takes different forms. I can spend two or three days without completing anything, and it’s choppy: it’s filled with all kinds of irrationalities and stupid actions.

For me, the Parc des Princes is special, somewhere I’d go to spend my pocket money.
I don’t take for granted all the blessings that I have, and as soon as I heard about Computers for Youth, I really wanted to be involved. Anyone who knows me knows how much time I spend on computers. I’m a computer addict. Every young person deserves to have a computer in his or her home.

Having to think so much about fictitious relationships that work or don’t work, and with each relationship between characters managing to do one or other of those in its own peculiar way, I spend a lot of time thinking about relationships, real and imagined.
It’s possible to spend every waking hour here on the ninth floor and not get out of the office. And this isn’t the real world in here. And contrary to public opinion, I’m not incredibly poll-driven. They are an ongoing indicator of how we are going, but I take the feedback I get on the street as being the most important.
I don’t want to spend my energy on people who don’t like me.
I’d love to do something on Broadway. I’d love to spend some time in New York.

Lose an hour in the morning, and you will spend all day looking for it.

When working with an orchestra, you never spend more than 20 minutes per recording session.
Whenever I go to a new team the jabs about being a Harvard guy are always more prevalent. This is mainly because people don’t know much about me other than being the Harvard guy that did well on his Wonderlic test. The more time I spend with people, the less the Harvard stuff comes up.
Every coach has his own style of play, but when you spend your whole life as a Cowboy, you have to be influenced by what we did.
If you spend your whole life being depressed about life, you’re wasting it.
C. K. Williams

I don’t spend any time whatsoever thinking about what might have been.
We spend most of our lives cutting down our ambitions because the world has told us to think small. Dreams express what your soul is telling you, so as crazy as your dream might seem – even to you – I don’t care: You have to let that out.
Eleni Zaude Gabre-Madhin
For a rich and reasonably successful guy, it is impossible not to enjoy your job; otherwise, why would you spend so much time and effort doing it? I am a great fan of Norilsk, and I like this kind of challenge.

If you spend five minutes with your worst enemy – it doesn’t have to be about race, it could be about anything… you will find that you both have something in common. As you build upon those commonalities, you’re forming a relationship and as you build about that relationship, you’re forming a friendship.
As you navigate through the rest of your life, be open to collaboration. Other people and other people’s ideas are often better than your own. Find a group of people who challenge and inspire you, spend a lot of time with them, and it will change your life.
My interest is in the future because I am going to spend the rest of my life there.
It was a wonderful experience to live the life for a year; to spend all day doing Shakespeare and then do a play in the evening.
All of us who are worth anything, spend our manhood in unlearning the follies, or expiating the mistakes of our youth.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
Prisons are big businesses, which I hadn’t realized. A lot of these name brand labels that we wear – they’re using prison labor and exploiting prisoners, who live in harsh conditions. People need to know about this kind of sweatshop labor, so they can decide what to spend their money on.
You do live longer with bran, but you spend the last fifteen years on the toilet.
I’m so jealous of people who have crushes on people they go to school with or work with. That’s such a blessing. You actually get to see them all the time and spend time with them.
It is of practical value to learn to like yourself. Since you must spend so much time with yourself you might as well get some satisfaction out of the relationship.
Norman Vincent Peale
Instead of putting someone in prison for being a hooligan, give him a choice. He may have beaten someone up and he’s got eight years, but tell him you can do eight years inside or spend five years in the Army. Put him in the Parachute Regiment, they’d soon sort him out.

I make sure that I spend quality time with my family.
When we understand the connection between how we live and how long we live, it’s easier to make different choices. Instead of viewing the time we spend with friends and family as luxuries, we can see that these relationships are among the most powerful determinants of our well-being and survival.
I don’t take breaks, man. In the past, I used to spend my free time getting in trouble, and now I spend it working on my music. If I’m not playing drums with my cover band, Chevy Metal, I’m working on songs for myself.
Arizona is the worst place to spend the summer – it’s like 125 degrees – so my mom, my brother and I would go to the beach for two months to escape the heat.

It’s not that I lead this oblivious life where I think I’ve got such a great personality that people want to spend time with me. If someone has a poster of you or asks for your autograph, clearly you can’t take them out on a date. It’s not that interesting if someone is just interested in you.
Have fun in your command. Don’t always run at a breakneck pace. Take leave when you’ve earned it, spend time with your families.
Paris is a danger for people like me. We spend our rent money in Paris on clothes.
I feel an important part of beauty is not only what you do on the outside but also what you put into the inside. Good fresh food with many vegetables along with love and caring for others. I spend way more time serving others than I do on my beauty routine daily.
The amount of money currently in your bank account is a fact. The amount you spend today is a choice. And the way you reconcile both is through clarity.
Sarah Ban Breathnach

I want to live life, not just spend it.
Economics is all about consumption. People either spend money now or they use financial instruments – like bonds, stocks and savings accounts – so they can spend more later.

Instead of worrying about what people say of you, why not spend time trying to accomplish something they will admire.

I just love to shop. If I could, I would shop every single day in every single store and spend all of my money which, you know, I do anyway.
Over the years, golf has evolved from a leisurely game of stick and ball into a competitive sport for highly skilled athletes. Players not only spend countless hours fine-tuning technique on the course, but also improving strength, stability, and endurance in the gym.
I think people care. If not, why do so many people spend money going on vacations to see architecture? They go to the Parthenon, to Chartres, to the Sydney Opera House. They go to Bilbao… Something compels them, and yet we live surrounded by everything but great architecture.
There’s some ignorant people in the world, and if I spend time trying to convince people to think like me, I’ll be wasting valuable time I could use to be growing my business, perfecting my craft as a fighter, watching film, studying, or just enjoying time with my family. Or just sleeping.
I can’t work on something if I don’t believe in it. I love music, and I am inspired to work harder and spend more energy. I feel lucky that I was born with this passion.

Lal Bahadur Shastri

It is troubling that modern slavery is a crime that can be hidden in the supply chains of the goods and services we use every day. The uncomfortable reality is that the money we spend could be driving demand for slavery across the globe.
A lot of things you see as a child remain with you… you spend a lot of your life trying to recapture the experience.
It’s possible that you have been told a time or 10 that you don’t appreciate how tough your elders had it.

Most of the time I spend when I get up in the morning is trying to figure out what is going to happen.

Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future. Think how really precious is the time you have to spend, whether it’s at work or with your family. Every minute should be enjoyed and savored.
If you spend all day on horseback, and you hop off, you walk around like you still have a horse between your legs. And it affects your shoulders. They fall.

I spend most of my time at the ranch with my family, and enjoy life – watch the sun come up, watch it go down, thank God for another day, and just be happy.
I made a lot of money. I earned a lot of money with CNN and satellite and cable television. And you can’t really spend large sums of money, intelligently, on buying things.

Socialism is when government’s taking care of you, you send all your money to the government, the government decides how to spend it instead of letting the people spend it and make all those decisions.
My iPhone has changed my life – I spend hours taking photos of the sidewalk as I walk down the street. I like the casualness, that it’s low-resolution.

In prison, you have to forget about the world on the outside. You have no Internet, no communications, and you’re cut off from the whole world. Everything is given to you. You have shelter; you have food, a shower, water. You don’t need to spend a dime. You don’t have to worry about bills.
You can’t be the accountant in your accounting firm. You can’t cut the grass in your landscaping business. You can’t work on the vehicles in your auto repair shop… And you really can’t spend all of your time managing those actions, either.
It was a favorite expression of Theophrastus that time was the most valuable thing that a man could spend.

Bonuses balance my budget in New York City. The bigger the bonuses on Wall Street, the more money I had to spend on poor people. The New York City budget is determined greatly by the bonuses given on Wall Street.
I’m a great believer that scientists should spend as much time as possible explaining, and you do explain in the process of teaching.
People spend a lifetime thinking about how they would really like to live. I asked my friends and no one seems to know very clearly. To me it’s very clear now. I wish my life could have been like the years when I was writing ‘Love in the Time of Cholera.’

Saying that you spend Christmas alone is, to most middle-class Americans, akin to confessing a terminal illness.

Joseph B. Wirthlin
Most of our players come from the Championship; Chelsea can get more or less anyone from around the world. Some clubs in this division have owners who say it doesn’t matter what they spend. I don’t know what happened to Financial Fair Play but it didn’t exactly level the playing field.
We spend so much time sublimatin’, thinkin’ about, ‘What am I going to have for lunch, dinner?’
Christmas for me is all about spending time with my family. I cherish any chance we have to spend all day together making gingerbread houses, baking cookies, or sitting around and watching movies.
The hours I spend with you I look upon as sort of a perfumed garden, a dim twilight, and a fountain singing to it. You and you alone make me feel that I am alive. Other men it is said have seen angels, but I have seen thee and thou art enough.
George Edward Moore
A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
I just see too many people retire and say, ‘I’m going to take off, travel, spend time with my family’ and they are just miserable. They end up dying. People who work and stay active, and like what they are doing, live longer.
Almost all our suffering is the product of our thoughts. We spend nearly every moment of our lives lost in thought, and hostage to the character of those thoughts. You can break this spell, but it takes training just like it takes training to defend yourself against a physical assault.

George Bernard Shaw
What is important for kids to learn is that no matter how much money they have, earn, win, or inherit, they need to know how to spend it, how to save it, and how to give it to others in need. This is what handling money is about, and this is why we give kids an allowance.
You have to spend some energy and effort to see the beauty of math.

I’ll tell you what makes me feel worthwhile: organizing and solving other people’s problems. It makes me feel good to go to Mexico City and figure out theories on how you can reorganize and reduce crime. To me, it’s one of the more fulfilling ways to spend a day.
Every family should have the right to spend their money, after tax, as they wish, and not as the government dictates. Let us extend choice, extend the will to choose and the chance to choose.

Harpists spend 90 percent of their lives tuning their harps and 10 percent playing out of tune.

D. B. Weiss
I spend a lot of time just, you know, with my girlfriend and my dog. And I mean, we don’t have a lot of furniture in our house, so it’s really simple. And we’re trying to build products for everyone in the world, right. And you don’t want to get isolated to do that.
I think that everyone at any age should ask themselves, ‘where do I want to be today, where do I want to be tomorrow, and where do I want to be in a hundred years?’ We all have clear answers to those questions. We only have so much time. It’s a real shame if we don’t spend our lives trying to do that.

The way I work is, I always compose a shot list before I talk to anybody, including my DP. So I’ll spend a couple months basically creating the movie in my head, so I have a very solid film in my head, where I know every shot, and I know what the transitions between scenes are.
We spend too much, we borrow too much, and we distort the markets. The bigger the distortions have lasted, the bigger the bust will be.

Such a chimerical idea as telegraphing vocal sounds would indeed, to most minds, seem scarcely feasible enough to spend time in working over. I believe, however, that it is feasible and that I have got the cue to the solution of the problem.
Alexander Graham Bell

The obvious rule of efficiency is you don’t want to spend more time organizing than it’s worth.

R. L. Stine

I can spend the day without writing or reading, but I can’t spend a day without listening to music.
The only time I waste is time I spend doing something that, in my gut, I know I shouldn’t.

I did it for a reason – to relax, to decompress or to feel good, and that was what I wanted to do.
I’m just grateful I didn’t have to spend my early 20s in front of paparazzi cameras.

My dad was a big car guy. If you wanted to spend time with my dad, he was working on the car.
By virtue of my job, I’m traveling. You get to spend very little time with your family. We hardly get to meet each other except on the one odd day we really get to spend time, have dinner together. And that’s rare, and we cherish it.
